i was really forget that i have to update this blog once in a while, right now i was studying at 3d animation, it really a lot of fun because i want to step into a next level of creating nothing.

i just finish my first 3d works recently, but i wasn't able to upload it, maybe i compile it to a longer version so you can enjoy more rather that 4 seconds test video.

another hero test

it's pretty busy week yesterday that make me forgot to make a matte painting video, but it seems that i still cannot take my head off the hero test project and end up making 1 in the following days.

i search up freezing touch, i don't know why it always shows freezing time?
this is inspired by heroes series, tracey strauss.

yep, this is tracey strauss

let's have a closer look

ain't that a nice bath?

i'm taking an example of what a freezing animation should do when freezing something

if you look closely, freezing actually jump and expand from point to point

anyway, here's mine, hope you like it.

Hero's week end

i'm having a hard time right now managing my job and this study of fire (because lightning part is done). i hope i can do more in the next week.

i haven't decided what theme i set for this week, but i think matte painting is a fun topic to discuss, i have several times doing matte painting because i love to see very huge area of something uncommon. later i'll embed my work here.

Hero's week 2

after a long time searching for lightning, it is not simple as i seems. you want to control this randomness of lightning. a lot of time, i cannot achieve what i want, 1 frame is ok but the animation will make it less dynamic.

this is the type of lightning i create so far

i don't think there's a need for me to appear and using this effect. this is part of my experimentation so later on when i make some film, i know how to make them.

i hope i can move on to fire and teleportation.

Hero's week : lightning

i do some research on how lightning should look like, and i just finish watching thor. those lightning was awesome, not to mention that the characteristic of lightning suppose to be.

there are several type of lightning and there's also a thunder.
1. lightning ball, it's usually charge up, forming a ball, then shoot. i think this ball is very easy, but take time to animate the charge.
2. bolt, maybe i can make it the same as strike one, this type of lightning is long and wobbly around. but there are several type of bolt, one is zap then fade, and another is zapping for a longer period of time.
3. laser like bolt, like the one gash bell have for his spell zakeruga. i only think that this effect only available in anime, but i hope i can make it in real life.
4. lightning for the sky, not like any other type i mention above, this one doesn't come from your hand. you can achieve this effect from video copilot tutorial by andrew kramer.

i hope i can make each example above and apply it to real life footage.

i found this very nice heroes video from youtube, this is a good starting point embed is disabled :(

the first project is done, its telekinesis or move things with mind power or something..
if you have any more idea, or want to share something, please do so.

here is the video:

Hero's Week

hi everyone, i want to say thank you for coming to this blog, i like to make video and i try to make everything organize, so i set a theme for every week (hopefully every week). and this week's theme is HERO....

i will make a video with special effect for any kind of hero power that might make you smile.
here is the list of power that i will make, i'll make sure for myself that i will make them all.
1. telekinesis
2. lightning
3. fire
4. umm... teleport

i think 4 is enough for now, i cannot think of anything.
if you like to discuss how to make or have more idea of power i should make, we can share the idea together.
